News Flash: The good wolf and the evil wolf engaged in a mortal battle to the death. Day and night they ripped and tore at each other’s flesh. Hmm… This is not a fake news story. Just like Trump is President and you’re not… Soooo, guess who won?

Maybe it didn’t quite happen that way… But this is just the way I remember it. During a beer break from the storm of Trump’s denials — of any Russian connections, as well as everybody but Trump’s denial of any … Continue reading

I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex, and rich food. He was healthy right up to the day he killed himself. Hmm… Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority it’s time to reflect. Such as why is smoking the leading cause of statistics? But now we’re getting smoking back at Grumpy’s…

So there I was… hopping in and out of my seat, agitated and pacing before Philadelphia City Council. In their ornate 100 year old gilded chamber nestled in the elaborate, grand stone monster smack in the center of the city … Continue reading

No matter how smart you are you spend much of your day being an idiot. Hmm… I hate to advocate cigars, alcohol, drugs or insanity to anyone, but they’ve always worked for me. Self-righteousness has killed more people than smoking. So why is the government minding Grumpy’s business?…

Everybody’s got an excuse for failure. Have you noticed that success doesn’t need one? What used to be a sin is now an array of diseases. Then I met a woman who blamed her ADHD for everything….until I gave her a hundred bucks…

This story ends with me offering this chesty, young woman, who pulled up a barstool to sit next to me, one hundred dollars. It was almost 2 in the morning, when no one is ugly. We weren’t exactly negotiating. Hmm… … Continue reading
